Nashville Predators center Matt Cullen welcomed 100 kids to his very first youth hockey camp at A-Game Sports Plex in Franklin, Tennessee, earlier this month. Cullen and his coaching staff instructed, mentored, and practiced with the young athletes, who were thrilled to pick up tips from the 2006 Stanley Cup winner. Cullen has been a Teammate since 2004.
Teammates happily provided scholarships that made it possible for many children to attend the camp at no cost. These scholarships were provided to children of military families from Fort Campbell through the USO.
Continuing its tradition of presenting a Good Teammate Award at each camp where it provides scholarships, Teammates recognized 9-year-old Preston Kimbrough from Nashville. He received the award for exhibiting the traits of a Total Teammate: leadership, toughness, unselfishness, and respect for the game and all of its participants.
